Spalding Ramblers made the most of the sunshine by walking around Holbeach St Matthew on Sunday. Judy Chapman, publicity officer, said: “It was a wonderful walk, with lovely views across the Wash and you could see the Boston Stump from wherever we walked.”

Since forming in 1986, members meet every Sunday and walk between five and ten miles, and this is extended to Wednesdays in the summer. Members believe that rambling is the perfect way to exercise and enjoy the beauty of the countryside. Non members are invited to join the group for two trial walks. Alongside wanting to connect like-minded people, the group has been successful campaigning for two bridges over drains in the local area to create footpaths. The Ramblers hold annual celebrations for the anniversary of the first walk in Bourne Woods every June. The programme for 2015 is now available from the South Holland Centre and from local libraries.
